Summary

What will the Enterprise IT landscape look like in 2016? Many predictions have hit the Internet, however, an overwhelmingly shared view suggests that BYOD, IoT, security, and the CDO will all help to shape Enterprise IT for this upcoming year.

In a recent article on itportal.com, 2016 Predictions: The Future Landscape of Enterprise IT, author Walker White predicts that:

  • BYOD Management will get worse before it gets better
  • The Internet of Things will mature in2016
  • There’ll be an increased focus on software security
  • IT Enterprise companies will see technology adoption as a risky business
  • We’ll see the rising profile of a Chief Data Officer.

As taken from the site:

Traditionally relegated to the wings, the CDO has taken on an increasingly vital role within enterprise IT just as data has become a central focus, and in 2016 this trend will lead to a significant restructuring of the C-suite.

To extract maximum value from this analytics-, security- and asset-focused role, the CDO should report directly to the Chief Information Security officer – a position that itself needs to have a direct line to the CEO to recognize the importance of better data for security and for an organization’s overall IT posture.

These predictions may or may not be true. However, another key factor in Enterprise IT is the integration of VoIP phones in order to harness the technological advances these phone systems offer. Have you begun your VoIP implementation yet? The new year is a great time to start!

Take a look at IT Portal’s 2016 predictions and let us know if you agree, or if you have your own ideas of what’s in store for the future of Enterprise IT.
